Scrapbooking Predicted to Dominate CHA Show

Hot Off the Press and Others Will Take Center Stage


Many predict that scrapbooking and papercrafts will rule the 65th Annual Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Convention and Trade Show, controling half the floor space of the Las Vegas Convention Center Jan. 30 through Feb. 2. General crafts will claim the second biggest chunk of real estate, and yarn, beads and jewelry-making will also be hot at this year’s comprehensive event, experts told TDmonthly Magazine.

As of mid-December, a total of some 1,100 exhibitors had registered for 3,000 booths at the show, according to the CHA. The association will release a Consumer Usage & Attitude Study at the event putting annual retail sales in all craft categories at an all-time high of $30 billion.

Scrapbooking, a $2.5-billion phenomenon, will occupy about one third of the booths at the expo — the largest of its kind worldwide. Also prominent will be a new Imaging Pavilion with digital scrapbooking equipment and accessories by Epson, Sony, Noritsu, Polaroid and Mitsubishi, said Tony Lee, CHA’s vice president of meetings and expositions.
